1527 North El Camino Real, San Clemente

The owners of Shwack Beach Grill have plans to open a second location in San Clemente.

Shwack has been serving up its California-inspired menu to Dana Point since 2011. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, Shwack offers a variety of options, from burgers and tacos to grilled fish and “Baby Shwack Ribs.”

“Customers can expect high-quality product,” owner Max Fisher said. “They can expect handmade and chef-driven food and for it to be easy on the wallet.”

The new San Clemente location is planned to open later this year. Although it will carry many of the same items as the original Shwack, there will be some changes as well.

“There will be more of a cantina theme,” Fisher said. “We’ll have the same products and food, the same basic concept, but with a cantina flare.”

Shwack Beach Grill is open from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily.
